Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta.

In a large bowl combine the eggs, ricotta, and creme fraiche and stir until the eggs are beaten and the ingredients are combined. Add the cooked orzo, chicken, scallions, parsley, red bell peppers, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

Pour the mixture into a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn on the broiler. Place the pan under the broiler until golden on top, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let set for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with a side salad.

    I tuned to the cooking channel this afternoon and Giada was making this. I made it several times in the past and it is very good. Another reviewer was correct; I found it a bit bland. Now I add some fresh parsley, and basil and a little dried oregano. Some grated parm doesn't hurt either. It is very good!

    Recipe lacks spices. Pepper isn't enough and it seems when people cook on tv, the food
    doesn't have the same consistency at home as it does on television.
